Subject: Poor Skippy!
Fun film about two kids travelling along from NY to SF by plane. There's lots of 1960s airplane culture no longer there (massive lunches!) and some not even remembered (free gum!) The airline stewardess attentiveness to Sue and condencending attitude to Bob is great too. ("Oh, you can have one too") The kids even get to hand out the aforementioned free gum to the passengers! Just a big airline treat. Highly reccomended!

Subject: Interesting
Production values are a bit rough and the narration isn't so good, but it was interesting to get a short 10-minute glimpse into traveling by plane during the early 1960s.

Very clearly aimed at kids.
